These were taken back in early May when one of our Speckled Sussex hens hatched out a dozen chicks. In the first photo, she is sitting on all twelve although only four tiny heads are poking out. GX8 and 20/1.7.

And this one was about 10 days later.

Seven of the twelve turned out to be roosters and we didn't need anymore trouble so we ended up slaughtering them recently and they were quite tasty.

Got some new chicks to augment our aging flock. Mostly Golden Comets (Sex-Links) and some Welsummers. They are about 1 week old in the first photo and 2 weeks in second & third. GX8, 12-35/2.8.

OMG! I didn’t realize we have a chicken thread. I’ve been holding back because I wasn’t sure where to put them all. Unfortunately, most are pretty old. I may have previously shared some of them in the birds thread. Here’s a first contribution. I’ll be back. :dance4:
